Nearly 100 people took part in the Cheney Chase fun run raising more than £900 for the Cancer Research UK charity.

The event, held on Sunday May 15, took place for the first time since 2019 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Helen Harman, one of the event’s organisers, said: “The Cheney Chase is a 2.5 mile circular route around the footpaths in Middleton Cheney, and 89 people of all ages and abilities ran, jogged or walked.
